With only these limited details, it’s unclear if Video Games Deluxe is working on a VR version of an existing Rockstar game, as it did with L.A. Noire, or if this will be an original IP. With GTA 5 recently announced for PS5 there’s demonstration that Rockstar is interested in further expanding the reach of their current Grand Theft Auto. Perhaps VR could be that avenue.
